Dates may show up incorrect in FTP Listings. For example a file created between 12:00 PM and 12:59 PM may show up with the date and time of 1/1/80 12:00pm.


Microsoft Internet Explorer maps times between 12:00AM and 12:59AM to 12:xx and 12:00PM and 12:59PM to 24:xx.

The result is that when you call SystemTimeToFileTime for files with a time stamp between 12:xx and 12:59PM, it fails, causing the default of 1/1/80 12:00PM to be written. Also, the 12:00AM to 12:59AM cases end up being incorrectly converted to 12:xx (24hr time), which is PM.
